Horizon Pharma's CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

At this point I’d like to turn the call over to Todd who will discuss our commercial highlights for this quarter.

Todd Smith

Thank you, Tim. Good morning everyone and thank you for joining us today. It's a pleasure to discuss with you our second quarter 2012 commercial performance. From Wolters Kluwer market data we know that there were approximately 97.7 million (inaudible) scripts written in 2011 with approximately 31 million of those scripts written for ibuprofen for more than 30%. Further this demand for ibuprofen other generic NSAID has created an increased risk in NSAID cause GI toxicity with over 85% patients not being protected, thereby creating a substantial opportunity for DUEXIS to address unmet medical need for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis patients.

We also know that the NSAID market is a promotional and sample sensitive market and as Tim indicated earlier on the call, our strategy with the combined Horizon and Mallinckrodt sales force is to increase our called on target physicians from 10,000 to 50,000 high prescribing physicians. The Horizon and Mallinckrodt sales effort was designed to be complimentary with no overlap among the two sales teams. Our sales efforts that will target 25,000 high prescribers that will continue with the relationship they have already established with physician, while Mallinckrodt sales specialist will focus on an additional 25,000 high value prescribers. As a combined effort this breaks down to approximately 40,000 partner and care physician, 4,000 rheumatologists and 6,000 additional physicians such as orthopedic surgeons.
